About this item

Make A Dance change things up for their third release, ushing in rising Yorkshire post-punk outfit Deadletter to collaborate.

"Line The Cows" is a kinda wobbly, post-punk reggae-disco jam. Like Yard Act meets ESG and Jah Wobble with lyrical direction from John Cooper Clarke. A skeletal drum machine groove supporting winding bass and Zac's deadpan, well pronounced vox cutting through like a knife and providing some clever and insightful phrases. The second track is a recording of the band doing a full live take in London’s Pony Studios showcasing just how tight this 6 piece band are.

On the flip Make A Dance get to work with the remix package with broken beats and arpeggiated baselines, turning the track into a dark twisted monster fit for a 4am bass bin workout.

STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Make A Dance present rising Yorkshire firm Deadletter. The OG should appeal to fans of Yard Act and ESG whilst MAD are on hand with two wobbly, electrified disco-not-disco jams. Killer!
